Molex's iPass+™ HSC CXP copper and optical system enables twelve channels of 10 Gbps data, for up to 120 Gbps of total bandwidth, resulting in one of the fastest and densest I/O's on the market today
The iPass+ HSC CXP system is the latest addition to the existing iPass™ product family and enables pluggable copper or optical options, thereby increasing the flexibility of system-level hardware for end users. This dual paddle-card system was adopted as the InfiniBand* CXP 12x QDR standard in July 2008. This system was also adopted by IEEE 802.3ba, as the 100G Ethernet standard, providing 10 lanes of 10 Gbps data rates.
iPass+ HSC CXP products:
Integrated Connector (series 76105) - By leveraging high-speed wafer technology and compliant pin tails, Molex developed a higher density, 12-channel connector system capable of achieving Quad Data Rates (QDR) of 10 Gbps. This one piece press-fit connector and cage assembly provides one-step placement to the board
Copper Cable Assemblies (series 111025) - These copper cables are designed to accommodate single, ganged or stacked connector configurations in extremely high-density requirements. CXP passive copper cables are available in a variety of lengths.
Optical Cable Assemblies (series 106284) - The low profile CXP optical 4.50mm round cable assemblies offer improved fiber management over traditional flat cables for connecting CXP transceivers. The CXP optical cable assemblies utilize 24 fibers using industry-standard MTP/MPO connectors, 12 transmit (TX) and 12 receive (RX) and 10 Gbps high-bandwidth (OM3) fiber. This design meets InfiniBand bandwidth requirements for CXP modules spaced up to 300m.
